BAD BISHOP DVDS


The Scheming Scandinavian

THE SCHEMING SCANDINAVIAN WITH 2...Qxd5 (Andrew Martin)
2 hours 18 minutes. ISBN 0-9542934-2-8.   
DVD: £19.99/$29.95/€31,50

The Scandinavian Defence (1 e4 d5 2 exd5 Qxd5) is hugely popular at club level, because Black dictates the opening struggle from move one. In this instructive DVD, International Master Andrew Martin takes the viewer through all of the basic themes required to play the opening with confidence - and success. Particular attention is devoted to key strategies for Black, and major sections end with an easy-to-understand summary. The comprehensive coverage extends to transpositions, where Martin reveals a simple method of disarming the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (arising after 2 d4).






Accelerated Dragon Assault!

ACCELERATED DRAGON ASSAULT! (Andrew Martin)
2 hours. ISBN 0-9542934-6-0.  
DVD: £19.99/$29.95/€31,50

The Accelerated Dragon is a versatile and easy-to-learn system for Black to have in his repertoire. Black can force the variation via the Sicilian Defence (1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 g6), and there are cunning transpositions via different move orders - even via 1 c4, when an unsuspecting opponent starts with the English Opening.

Using illustrative games, Andrew Martin reveals how White can so easily go astray immediately when faced with the Accelerated, and how refutation attempts rebound disastrously. Against the positional Maroczy Bind system, Martin shows how Black can create active counterplay with pawn breaks.






Bashing the Sicilian with Bb5 volume 1

BASHING THE SICILIAN WITH Bb5 (Murray Chandler) Volume 1
Volume 1: 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5
90 minutes. ISBN 0-9542934-7-9.  
DVD: £19.99/$29.95/€31,50

The move 3 Bb5 against the Sicilian is enjoying a renaissance as a sound and forceful attacking system for White, as well as one which sidesteps the huge mass of normal Sicilian theory. Converts include Gary Kasparov, Vishy Anand, and Ruslan Ponomariov. In this DVD, Grandmaster Murray Chandler presents a cunningly selected and superbly consistent repertoire to counter every important Black response. Using 16 outstanding illustrative games, White's optimum strategies are clearly explained, and the lessons are reinforced by easy-to-understand summaries.

This DVD, volume 1, deals with lines after 2...Nc6. Volume 2 of Bashing the Sicilian with Bb5 covers the variation 2...d6 3 Bb5+.






Bashing the Sicilian with Bb5 volume 2

BASHING THE SICILIAN WITH Bb5 (Murray Chandler) Volume 2
Volume 2: 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 Bb5+
2 hours. ISBN 0-9542934-8-7.  
DVD: £19.99/$29.95/€31,50

The system 3 Bb5+ against the Sicilian is an excellent weapon for White – and has the bonus of cancelling out defences such as the Najdorf and the Dragon. In this DVD, Grandmaster Murray Chandler presents an aggressive repertoire to deal with every important Black response. Using 15 outstanding illustrative games – including some from Michael Adams, Sergei Rublevsky and Vladimir Kramnik – White's optimum strategies are clearly explained. The lessons are reinforced by easy-to-understand summaries, giving the viewer an instant new way to Bash the Sicilian.

This DVD, volume 2, deals with lines after 2...d6. Volume 1 of Bashing the Sicilian with Bb5 covers the variation 2...Nc6 3 Bb5.






The Knockout Nimzo

The Knockout Nimzo (Tony Kosten)
100 mins. ISBN 0-9542934-9-5.  
DVD: £19.99/$29.95/€31,50

In this DVD Grandmaster Tony Kosten hacks a path for you through the jungle of opening theory. He presents a complete and powerful repertoire for Black against the main lines of the Nimzo.

The Nimzo-Indian Defence (1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Bb4) offers dynamic winning possibilities for Black that persist throughout the game. Black trades the bishop pair, but in return gains the tactical advantage of quick development, and often also saddles White with long-term pawn weaknesses.
